Submit an event request to start your event planning process, including reserving space for your meeting, training, table, meal, or reception. You can request event promotion at the same time, including adding your event to the campus calendar and the Campus Events employee newsletter, and requesting poster design and printing.

If you're hosting a virtual event, you may need to create a registration form in order to share login instructions securely.
